In deciding which school you will choose for your kids, you can consider the benefits your kids and your family will get from the school, the output you want your kids get after school, and many other things you should consider further. “Truely, both Public School and Home School are means of education which help kids to achieve the goal of education, but those schools, Public School and Home School, have differences” (Pomadi,2007). First difference between Public School and Home School is about a question, “ Who are in charge here?”. In every school, including Public School and Home School, there are some people who are in charge of their students success in achieving education’s aims. Who are the man in charge of Public School and Home School?
Public school allows more interaction and socializing with other children, while home schooling concentrates on the how child progresses educationally, as the needs of the child are met. It is the goal of the parent home schooling to see their child succeed. Many parents would want to home school the child because of a hundred percent involvement in the child’s education, this is a major decision for any parent, but I know most parents wants to know how much their child is progressing on a daily basis, what are they learning and knowing they are a part of their child’s education. Most parents think it might be expensive to home school but it is not, most learning material can easily be found online for free. There is a famous quote by John F. Kennedy “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” As a parent, people around us might view home schooling as better especially those that home schooled as a child growing up.
Many people argue that development is vital in the younger years in the child’s life, and the ability to solve problems and apply ideas help in the long-term. Hyman argues that the lower classes create a self imposed barrier to learning their values. This is because he believes that they have a low value on education, with a ‘play safe’ culture and also a low level of self belief. This would all impact on the child performance at school as they would not have the attitude needed to progress. If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation.
Unlike the community parents can give privileges on the time that a child has to be home by. That all depends on the child’s attitude, grades in school, if he/she has work, a school function, or sport related activity. The curfew could fluctuate on a daily basis it all depends on what the student/child has going on that day. If the community was in charge of curfews they can’t fluctuate every student’s curfew like the students’ parents could. If a student doesn’t have good parental figures in their life having the community enforce curfews could be a beneficial thing.
However, many schools mistake this as incorporating information technology into the curriculum. School staff need to research what IT is available and what would best serve the school's purpose, not simply purchase the latest equipment. There should be a policy stating how IT is going to assist pupils' development and what teachers want pupils to achieve (Reksten, 2000). Staff members need to be clear about what they want IT to do for them before they can start incorporating it into their lessons. The only way information technology is going to be useful to schools is if all staff members are well-informed and fully supported.
Nowadays there is a considerable debate whether children should go to schools for education or can have home education instead. People are starting to consider thinking which way would be more suitable for their kids and for themselves as well. They are assessing the positives and negatives of each option and then choosing the one that is best fitting their needs and life style. Although that most of parents that started home education for their children have found out that it is not easy to transfer school facilities to home, but it has become a very accepted alternative way for going to schools . The number of children being educated at home is considerably increasing though there are no accurate prevalence estimates as mentioned by Petrie, Windrass & Thomas, 1999.
Many schools emphasize parental involvement, because of the great impact it has on students, schools, and communities. Students benefit if teachers and parents are in consensus with one another. Both education and the government officials are improving and implementing the importance of parental involvement in schools. Also, many methods and organizations are being developed to emphasize the importance of parental involvement and use educational tactics to increase the level and quality of parent involvement. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the lack of parental involvement, importance of parental involvement on the academic achievement of students, and the local and national resources that are available to increase parental involvement in schools.
What are the concerns relevant stakeholders have when engaging in the transition? The transition from teacher-driven learning to more student-led learning is a concern for parents. Responsibility falls on the child to complete schoolwork and parents commented that students must have the appropriate structures to cope with the added workload. The parents of children with academic challenges have the most concern. They feel that the help afforded to these students in their primary education may not be readily available at secondary level (O’Brien, 2004 p.38).
As part of classroom management, such relationships are the most significant factor in determining a teacher's work as successful. Parents and educators quickly accept that students need to be taught from an effective. Curriculum in order to be successful in school, however although most parents would say that they would want their children to have positive relationships with their teachers, they may view a close teacher-student relationship as less than necessary. Research suggests that this variable has a significant influence on student achievement. In order for students to learn what is offered from an effective curriculum, they must be able to access support from their teachers.
School staff need to research what IT is available and what would best serve the school's purpose, not simply purchase the latest equipment. There should be a policy stating how IT is going to assist pupils' development and what teachers want pupils to achieve (Reksten, 2000). Staff members need to be clear about what they want IT to do for them before they can start incorporating it into their lessons. The only way information technology is going to be useful to schools is if all staff members are well-informed and fully supported. It is the principal's responsibility, and should be part of the school's plan, to ensure that all staff are consulted about the changes, and that the change is carefully organised.
